We are certainly feeling the winter chills now, it’s time to wrap ourselves in wool and enjoy knitting and creating our warm textiles!
It’s the busiest time of the year for Glenora Weaving & Wool as we travel to our trading venues, so do check out the diary dates on the reverse of this page and visit our stand to take advantage of the great Show Specials.
At the recent Contextart in Springwood, we conducted a lucky draw for the workshop participants and the winner of the Glenora Weaving $100 gift voucher was Telena Roth, a very talented fibre artist, congratulations Telena!
Unfortunately, the spinning mill in New Zealand who supplied us with fine merino yarns has closed down recently. This will affect the supply of merino 110/3, 74/2 and the hi-twist yarn, however we are searching for a new supplier. Weaving yarns require a higher twist than those for knitting but sadly there are no mills left in Australia producing weaving yarns.
We still have good stocks of the very soft possum/merino/silk. This luxury yarn is available in 100g skeins in seven lovely shades and just 50g knits or weaves a warm, light scarf. (free pattern available)
Another great winter yarn is the 4 ply Alpaca which is so warm and soft for scarves and was recently featured in the Knitters Guild newsletter with our pattern for cute baby footie socks! We also have free scarf patterns available for our yarns, so don’t forget to ask for one when purchasing our products for knitting.
The new superfine merino ‘twists’ have been selling well, available in cream or lovely dyed shades they are perfect for creative yarns or felting.
We are currently offering some great Winter Specials, so please turn over the page for more details but remember the supply is limited on some products.
The new website is very popular and our customers are enjoying the convenience of on-line shopping at glenoraweaving.com.au
It’s certainly the ideal way to view the sample cards, access information on our products and fill your shopping cart! Of course, you are still welcome to phone or email us with any queries or orders!
